I am a graceful fairy.
I am so excited for Christmas!
The baking is done, so is the gnocchi sauce for tomorrow, and just now, I'm sneaking in a quicky post before we open the fireplace, roast some chestnuts, an listen to Old Time Radio Shows.
It's kind of my personal tradition to make Pizzelles every year. Pizzelles are little wafer-like cookies that you cook in something that looks like a waffle maker.
Sammi came over to help bake. She's awesomesauce. =)
She also gave me my Christmas pressie early so she could watch me open it. AAAAAah!!!!!!!!
In case you can't read it, they say:
You're the Sam to my Dean and
You're the Dean to my Sam.
Today I cleaned like a mad thing (to welcome Baby Jesus, you know. *grin*) while everyone else finished up the baking.
THEN we made gnocchi. It's tradition. Every year we make gnocchi for Christmas. It's been a thing since ever.
So we blasted some Christmas music and got started!
After that we had dinner (as you do, duh.)
And now it is late. We rehearsed the Mass, we sang carols, and now we're listening to The Great Gildersleeve, and eating chestnuts.
I'm a little sad we couldn't go to Midnight Mass, but there you go. There's something awfully special about staying home on Christmas Eve, eh?
God bless you all, and I hope you have a very, very merry Christmas.
I love you all!
